My 8 Favorite Quotes About Raindrops And Rain

Raindrops Colors by ARTbyJWP on Flickr

Spring rains have something brilliantly refreshing. They don’t recall melancholic thoughts nor spread a sense of darkness like the autumn rains do. Spring rains offer to nature’s colors impressive vibrancy and reward the soil with the odor of fertility. My last photos of raindrops upon green leaves inspired me to remember and gather my favorite quotes about raindrops and rain.  I hope to find them inspiring, too!

“Colors shone with exceptional clarity in the rain. The ground was a deep black, the pine branches a brilliant green, the people wrapped in yellow looking like special spirits that were allowed to wander over the earth on rainy mornings only.”

– Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

“Love like rain, can nourish from above, drenching couples with a soaking joy. But sometimes under the angry heat of life, love dries on the surface and must nourish from below, tending to its roots keeping itself alive.”

Paulo Coelho, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept

“A warm, rainy day – this is how it feels when friends get together. Friend refreshes friend then, as flowers do each other, in a spring rain.”

– Rumi

“But then again I wonder if what we feel in our hearts today isn’t like these raindrops still falling on us from the soaked leaves above, even though the sky itself long stopped raining. I’m wondering if without our memories, there’s nothing for it but for our love to fade and die.”

– Kazuo Ishiguro, The Buried Giant

“I want your sun to reach my raindrops so your heat can raise my soul upward like a cloud.”

– Rumi

“Some of my pleasantest hours were during the long rain-storms in the spring or fall, which confined me to the house for the afternoon as well as the forenoon, soothed by their ceaseless roar and pelting; when an early twilight ushered in a long evening in which many thoughts had time to take root and unfold themselves.”

– Henry David Thoreau

“At night I dream that you and I are two plants that grew together, roots entwined and that you know the earth and the rain like my mouth since we are made of earth and rain.”

– Pablo Neruda

“Don’t threaten me with love, baby. Let’s just go walking in the rain.”

Billie Holiday

Wish you all a beautiful day!
